2019 Salt Spring Film Festival – Program and Schedule

    Film Festival    February 18, 2019

Welcome, one and all, to the 20th Anniversary of the Salt Spring Film Festival! We have a few special things planned for you to mark the occasion, so be sure to take a good look through the program this year. We have added an extra room to allow for more films and more repeat screenings. We know you love the extra value of discussing films with filmmakers. This year for the first time we will give the filmmakers a chance to interact not just with the audience but also with each other at Saturday’s Attending Filmmaker Discussion. The Friday gala is better than ever, with the return of the scrumptious gala hot dinner, plus celebratory wine, beer and special non-alcoholic drink. (And of course we are keeping the wildly popular popcorn, too!) We have also changed the Saturday/Sunday physical layout a little to ease congestion and make it quicker for you to access food and drink. Look for our new food area down the hall past the washrooms. Take a left from there to seek out a comfy secluded relaxation area. Just want a coffee? You can grab one from Ometepe at the far end of the multi-purpose room near the elevator. Saturday night we are having a 20th Anniversary film Metamorphosis with filmmakers Nova Ami and Velcrow Ripper in attendance. And be sure to check out the display commemorating our 20 years of film at GISS all weekend. Enjoy!
